How to Bank $40 Today If You Live in Pennsylvania
Do you live in Pennsylvania? Could you use 40 bucks?
Sure you could!
It doesn’t matter where in the Keystone State you live — Philly or Pittsburgh or Scranton or anywhere else. We’ve got a way for you to bank $40 for just a few minutes’ work.
It won’t cost you anything, and it won’t be a pain, we promise.
Here’s what you do:
Get a $20 Amazon Gift Card for Going Green
You can use your energy bill to support renewable energy — no matter where in Pennsylvania you live.
With renewable energy company Arcadia Power, you can offset your monthly energy consumption with 100% renewable sources in about two minutes.
Arcadia matches each kilowatt-hour of power you use with a kilowatt-hour of wind energy. Basically the company purchases certified renewable energy certificates in your name, so others can take advantage of clean energy in their area.
When you sign up your home or apartment (yup, renters are eligible, too!) with Arcadia, you’ll get a free $20 Amazon card.
Earn $10 Next Time You Shop
Sure, Ibotta is traditionally known as a cash-back app for groceries — and you can earn a heap of cash on your next haul — but you can also earn cash back on just about anything you purchase.
You can bank cash when you make an Amazon purchase, sign up for Hulu, book your next vacation or even order groceries through Shipt.
Penny Hoarder Carson Kohler earned $172 in just over a year’s time, thanks to the free app.
If you sign up now, you’ll snag a $10 bonus when you claim your first cash-back offer, and you can cash out once your balance hits $20.
Snag a Free $10 Walmart Card
One of our favorite ways to save is with Ebates, a cash-back site that rewards you nearly every time you buy something online. For example, Ebates gives you 10% cash -back on online purchases at Walmart.
